The Rich History of Gold Leaf

Ever since the times of Egyptian Pharaohs, gold has been considered to be the only way to win the favour of Gods. In Ancient Egypt, gold leaf was used to decorate the tombs of Pharaohs, as well as sarcophagi. The first use of gold has been traced to Alexandria, Egypt. Over 5,000 years ago. The Egyptians were the first to use gold as a precious metal. They made the first iterations of what we today associate to be jewellery. The Egyptians also consumed gold for the mental, bodily, and spiritual purification that was associated with it.

The alchemists of Alexandria developed an elixir made of liquid gold which they believed was capable of rejuvenating, restoring youth, and ridding the body of all earthly diseases. It is thought that Cleopatra slept in a pure gold face mask every night as a means to enhance her bewitching beauty.

Worldly Metal

Gold Throughout the World

Ancient Egyptians weren’t the only people to use gold as a ceremonial offering. For centuries, Eastern civilizations such as the Japanese have been using gold leaf as a decorative food and beverage garnish, and even various medicines and remedies.

In addition to the ceremonial and luxurious association gold has, it is believed to supplement health and longevity. In the middle of the 16th century, European noblemen decorated their food with gold leaf. Bread, oysters, quail and carp, luxuriously decorated with gold leaf, were served at banquets and weddings.

Rich European History

Medieval Ages

In some European countries, gold leaf as a food supplement became so common, that it had to be limited to two dishes per meal so as not to exhaust the gold supply. In Europe, gold leaf coated pills, and other gold water tinctures were extremely popular, with alchemists adding gold leaf into drinks to comfort and sooth sore limbs. It would later be discovered that they had made the earliest references to arthritis.

Great Revival

The Renaissance

It would be later during the Renaissance that Paracelsus (1493 – 1541); the man considered to be the founder of modern pharmacology; developed a variety of highly successful medicines from an assortment of metallic minerals, including gold.

In the 1900’s, surgeons would implant a small piece of gold under the skin near an inflamed joint, such as a knee or elbow. The resulting effect was that the pain would subside or cease altogether. In China, gold leaf has many restorative properties associated with it, and remains an honored element in a variety of villages where it is frequently added to a variety of meals to help replenish the minerals in the human body.

Health Benefits

Gold Leaf for Medical Purposes

The use of gold compounds in medicine is referred to as ‘chrysotherapy’. Since 1929, when a French doctor discovered its anti-inflammatory properties, gold compounds in drugs have been used to treat rheumatoid arthritis. In the past few decades, gold compounds have also been found to be useful as potential HIV agents and even cancer treatments.

Gold is naturally found in all organic soil in minute quantities, as well as found in plants such as grapes, mustard seed, and an assortment of other fruits and vegetables. It takes very little gold to make a huge difference in the health and bounty of all plant life.

Great Aid

Health Benefits of Gold

The use of gold has been studied in carefully controlled scientific studies and trails as a supplement to treat or ease the symptoms of arthritis, cervical cancer, prostate cancer, Alzheimer’s, nerve sensitivity restoration and anti-aging. All of these studies have shown a positive correlation between consumption of gold and relief of symptoms or in some cases eradication of disease with absolutely no side effects.

Soil around the world has drastically declined in quality due to pollution and the use of pesticides and genetically modified species. This in turn has produced vitamin and mineral deficient plant life which has created mineral deficiencies all the way up the food chain.
